LG Display close to deal to produce displays for Apple iWatch

LG logoLG Display is nearing a deal to provide OLED displays for Apple's iWatch, according to a Korean report. The Korea Herald adds that a RITEK subsidiary, RiTdisplay, will also be supplying OLEDs. HMC Investment Securities analyst Kim Young-woo in fact characterizes RiTdisplay as the main supplier, with LG serving as a secondary partner "to be safe." Left out of the equation is Samsung, which is reported to have met with Apple regarding iWatch screens but made no progress in negotiations.

The iWatch is generally expected to ship sometime in 2014. By the time it arrives, it may be facing competition from the likes of Samsung, Google, and Microsoft, all of whom have or are already working on smartwatches. The possible features of Apple's device are still shrouded in secrecy, but are rumored to focus on music playback control and notification support for nearby iPhones and iPads, plus an array of health and fitness sensors. It may also include one or more cameras, and allow iPhone owners to make calls without reaching into their pocket.
